2023 Château Peyrassol "Le Clos Peyrassol"Rosé, Provence, France

Extremely pale pink in color, this emblematic cuvée cultivates elegance, finesse and concentration. This is a delicate wine, with aromas of white cherry blossom, citrus fruit and white fruit (peach, pear). Fresh and generous on the palate, it immediately delivers the complexity typical of great wines. The aromas are gradually released and intermingle to offer the full expression of the grape varieties of Provence in their chosen terroirs. Built around the grape’s acids, this wine is very long on the palate, elegantly prolonged by bitters and a measured salinity.

ABOUT THIS WINE

Delicate pneumatic pressing, careful separation of juices, traditional vinification in stainless steel vats and temperature-controlled stoneware jars. At the end of fermentation, a light racking ensures that only the best of the lees remains. The small volumes matured in jars allow intimate contact with the lees and make it easier for the aromas and balance to develop naturally on the palate.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

The "Commanderie", now known as Chateau Peyrassol, is located north of St. Tropez and Hyeres between the villages of Le Luc and Flassans-sur-Issole. The estate controls 850 hectares and is surrounded by 165 hectares of Mediterranean forest. Eighty hectares are planted to vineyards which are cultivated on dry, rocky clay and limestone-based soil. When Francoise Rigord took over, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon were added to the Grenache and Cinsault already grown at the estate. The Rolle (a.k.a. Vermentino) and Ugni Blanc are the principal white grape varieties, supplemented by Semillon and Clairette. Peyrassol has rigorously maintained organic principles in full respect of the surrounding environment and the delicate balance of the local Mediterranean ecosystem. No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides are used in the vineyards. Organic foliar sprays help prevent chlorosis (nutrient deficiencies) and sheep manure is the only fertilizer used after the planting. The age of the vines, the rocky terrain, and the hot, dry climate establish conditions that severely restrict yields. As a consequence, harvest levels average between 25 and 40 hectoliters per hectare, depending on the vineyard and grape variety.
